Streams in the Desert
Posted: Saturday, September 19
Verse of the day:
Look, a righteous king is coming! And honest princes will rule under him. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land. (Isaiah 32:1-2)
Are you tired? Has the pace of life left you gasping for breath, wanting to call a time out and take a water break?
Now I am sure that most of us have never been lost in the desert before. I am pretty sure none of us have ever been so thirsty that we thought we would die. However, I am sure that all of us have endured a hot, 90 degree day, feeling the draining effects of sun exposure. I grew up in the south and lived in south Alabama for seven years. There is nothing more oppressive then a day of 90% humidity, 90+ degrees, and no wind. It is suffocating. On those days all you want is a cool place to be and not many places are more refreshing than a moving stream. Pools are nice, but water that is moving is cooler; it’s refreshing keeps rolling over you.
